As always seems to happen this time of year, I find myself wondering where 2008 went.
Our faithful readers will probably recall that my usual reaction to this feeling is to
take a few minutes out of the hectic holday season to look back and

If you missed any of the above and wish you hadn't, we've got a few different options for you.
The first is our weekly e-mail list: The ASP 101 News Flash.
If you're more of an RSS junkie than an e-mail jockey, you can always point your feed-reader of choice
